Description: Systems employing artificial intelligence–AI systems–play an increasingly important role in many sectors of society (such as transport, health, and education). AI systems perform tasks that only human agents have been able to so far, which raises a number of philosophical questions. To what extent and in what ways can human expectations and norms be applied to these systems? Can AI systems be held responsible for their behavior or actions, or is it appropriate to attribute this responsibility to human agents or institutions instead? Can AI systems have mental states? How can mechanisms of human agency be programmed into AI systems? How do we as human agents relate to them? We welcome articles for our thematic English-language issue that address philosophical problems related to AI systems (and, more generally, new digital technologies) from the perspective of moral philosophy, logic, social philosophy, and the philosophy of law.

Papers should not exceed 7000 words and should contain a 150-200 word abstract. For further instructions for authors, please consult the Journal’s style sheet here.

Deadline for submission: October 1, 2019

Manuscripts and queries should be sent to and Zsuzsanna Balogh at
